Cuttlebug Relax,Rejuvenate, Be Inspired Baby Project

Hello and welcome to my project for the Cuttlebug Challenge Spa Weekend Retreat. I have several friends and family members expecting babies so it was easy for me to decide which project I wanted to sign up for.

For this set I stamped onesies and made this cute little baby wreath.

For the onesies number one I stamped the flower image (Rhonna Farrer) on a piece of cotton cloth that had been adhered to two sided fusible webbing. I found mine at my nearby Hancocks fabric.

After stamping the image I then cut it out and ironed it to the onesie. I then stamped the sentiment right on the onesie. You need to use a pigment based ink for this so it will be permanent.

For onesie number two I just cut out heart shapes from my fabric and adhered them in the same manner as the first one. I also made a cute little box with an acetate lid for them to go in.

Next, how about a gift that is not only functional but decorative as well?

Can you imagine the smile you will put on some new mom's face when she sees this cute little baby wreath? It's made with a teething ring, pacifiers and baby washcloths, all of which can be used for the new baby. It was super easy too!

To make one of these yourself you will need the following items.

  • (1)Teething ring
  • (9) Baby washcloths
  • (3) Pacifiers
  • (12) 6 inch strips of ribbon
  • Wide ribbon
  • Wire ribbon for bow
  • (2) Safety pins
  • Gift tag (I made mine with my Cricut, George Cart, Cuttlebug, Swiss Dots and Frills Folder and Welcome Baby Die)

Let's get started!

Here is the finished set! Isn't it cute?

Have you been enjoying all the other great ideas the team has been sharing with you? I have been enjoying all the great comments you have left me. I love all the ideas for relaxation you've shared with me as well. You've definitely put a smile on my face.

Be sure to stop by Amber and Lea's blogs to see their fabulous Baby Gift ideas and if you haven't done so already, pop into the Cuttlebug Challenge site and check out all that's going on there.

Have a fantastic rest of the weekend! TTFN

Hugs, Becky
